    What are the first two digits of the serial number? What style of Roadstar 2 is it. The more info you provide, the quicker it can be identified and then you can get more info on the net.

    The first two digits (84) are the year the bass was built. Does it look like any of these on the right??

    no....although thats the closest i've seen......i'll give you the most detailed description i can.........

    My Ibanez roadstarII series is red with black trim around the body of the guitar..The neck and headstock are red...It's 24 frets, It has volume tone and pickup selector pots... The bridge pickup instead of the usual 8 dots has two rounded rectangles and as for the pickup in the middle of the body, it is a split coil but both are under a single cap making it look as if it is a soapbar....it has four tuning keys 2 right 2 left all chrome polished.....anything else that would narrow it down a bit?

    If you use this link you can browse the 83-84 Ibanez catalogues. It is pretty cool to see the specs on your bass. :bassist:

    does the fact that the bass is japanese make any difference?

    Roadstar 2 basses have a pretty good reputation around here. Congrats on your purchase!
